Fans have moved to praise Christophe Berra after the former Wolves man’s exit from Hearts was announced on Monday.
The defender is a product of the Hearts youth academy and has made over 200 appearances during a combined 11-year spell in Gorgie, which will end in May. He has also featured prominently in the Premier League and EFL with Wolves and Ipswich Town.
Berra broke through at Hearts in 2003, leaving in 2009 with a Scottish Cup winners’ medal to his name. He completed a £2.5 million transfer to Wolves, where he helped them win promotion to the Premier League.
The centre-back, who has 39 Scotland caps, played three seasons in the top flight of English football with Wolves before moving to Ipswich Town, rejoining Hearts in 2017. He won the 2017/18 Players’ Player and Fans’ Player of the Year awards and was also named in the PFA Scottish Premiership Team of the Year upon his return.
This season he has played regularly in the Scottish Championship as Hearts near a return to the Scottish Premiership, but Berra will move on at the end of the season. Fans have paid tribute to the 36-year-old as he prepare to go to pastures new.
